Four Seasons Hotel Prague
Travel Blogs from Prague
We caught the bus and we rode around the City of Spires, from Old Town to New Town (1600's) and up to the Cathedral and Castle area. We had made a lunch reservation at a restaurant in the park across the river from Old Town so we got off the bus to look a taxi. I found a cab and it took a while to give him the location and he discussed it with his friends at the taxi location. ...
... the trees. We had a traditional polish meal of tomato soup, marinated beef, pumpkin risotto, lamb, sorbet and chocolate cake. YUM! We then went for a walk to the Prague Castle. To get there we walked through a lovely park. The castle was more like a city centre that an actual castle but it was still fun to walk around. We went to a cafe and brought a coffee so that we could use their free wifi to Skype call Nathan's mum. ...
... 12,000 tombstones are visible in this very cramped space, some estimates say there are over a 100,000 buried here. It is unlike any other cemetery we’ve ever visited. From the cemetery, we wandered through Josephov (aka Jewish Quarter) towards the oldest synagogue in Prague that has managed to survive through the Second World War. The synagogue was built in 1270 in gothic style and is Europe’s oldest, active synagogue. The main part of the synagogue ...
I don't know why but the fact that I had to get up really early and check out and then spend 5 hours on a train never even crossed my mind when i decided to get absolutely intoxicated the previous night. I opened my eyes to searing pain in my head, a curdled stomach and the contents of my backpack strewn around the room. After about 5minutes of groggily recalling the night before I realised that I had about an hour to sober up, get showered, pack and get to the train station. ...
... amazing to think that these events had only ended in 1989 into the early nineties - when we were two years old. After a tiring eight hour day out and about we dragged ourselves back and got a good sleep for the next day we had planned. The second day we hired bikes for the day and our intention was to start out at a place called Wollankstrasse and bike back into Berlin following the old Berlin Wall trail. (Berlin has created a Berlin Wall path which is a ...

The Four Seasons Prague matches others of this group in which I have stayed. The welcome, reception, service and personnel all are superb! The hotel location makes exploring Prague easy being close to the Old Town and the River Vlatava.
My room had a view over the river towards the castle and was extremely well appointed, spacious and pristine. Throughout my three night stay I was treated like royalty.
The hotel has only one restaurant (unlike many other Four Seasons) and, oddly in the middle of the Czech Republic, the food is mainly Italian. The quality of cuisine is outstanding but I feel the menu is limited. I do find the lack of local dishes disappointing.
There were times when the service in the bar was somewhat sluggish!

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Prague
Just got back from 4 nights in July where we had booked a number of rooms for our family.Our suite had a picture perfect view of the Charles River.Staff were excellent and the concierge was very helpful in booking restaurants.Do go to Pravda (international cuisine-outstanding) and a Czech restaurant called "The Blue Duck"on the north side of the river for an authentic Czech meal.Very good food,atmospheric and cheap.Nice people.
I just returned from a four-night stay at The Four Seasons Prague. Everything was faultless from the excellent staff to the spacious and thoughtfully well-furnished room. I agree with another reviewer here--if there were six stars to give, this hotel would surely get them. Some of the small things that make a difference: the best sheets on any hotel bed I've ever had (and of course the bed itself was excellent), minibar stocked with everything you could ever want, free shoeshine and morning paper, L'Occitane bath products, cooked to order outstanding breakfast (not buffet) with fresh-squeezed orange juice, and accomodating and gracious hotel staff. These are the kind of things that are hard to find in even the finest five-star hotels in Europe. Don't expect the old world charm of a place like the Gritti Palace, though; everything in this hotel is brand, spanking new, which isn't a bad thing sometimes.
Stayed here four nights in June. It was wonderful. THe staff was attentive, the concierge more than helpful, and the food at Allegro (their Italian restaurant) was excellent. The rooms are beyond comfortable with the best beds ever! Near everything- e never had to take a cab while we were in Prage. (Some sights like the Castle are a 15 minute walk away but nevertheless walkable). The Charles bridge is practically beside it (5 minute walk tops). Expect to have a celebrity sighting. I could not believe my luck when Paul Mcartney was in the next table for breakfast! (the hotel was very discreet about it) I would stay here again in a heartbeat but with the Four Seasons what can you expect?
Like you need a review of a Four Seasons. This one is par for the course: perfect rooms, perfect lobby, terrific attentive staff. Expect to be interrupted every two hours if you spend time in your room--cleaen up? Freshen the mini-bar? Want some ice? Clean towels? Staying here couldn't be easier. The location is terrific, not next to anything but a short walk from everything. Only drawback for me was the supplemental pricing: US $19 for a hamburger in the bar, $32 for the egg breakfast, while I had nice dinners with wine elsewhere in Prague for $20 per person; $105 for a 60-minute massage in their spa, while the concierge found me a 75-minute massage nearby for $20; $18 to launder a pair of pants. Nicest hotel-pressed pants I've seen in a long time, but still. It comes with the territory, though, and this territory is second to none.
Spent one night here at the end of April. The best hotel location in the city. Right next to Charles Bridge. Hotel car (reasonable) collected me and returned me to the airport. Staff very professional. Allegro restaurant excellent. A small hotel by Four Season standards. No swimming pool and a very small outdoor patio area off the restaurant. Would highly recommend
More like a 6 star
we recently stayed here after staying at the magical aria hotel. aria was great and faultess and so is this hotel. they are very different though. if money is no object than this may be the hotel for you.
otherwise perhaps Aria is recommended for an excellent 5 star. this is more like 6 star and you pay for it. absolutely stunning hotel, staff very helpful and check out the day spa - perhaps I haven't been to enough day spas in sydney but this one seems to have it all - lots of attention to detail. the staff have thought of everything and it shows - the same goes for the hotel rooms.the rooms were the largest we experienced on our trip in europe. also compared to the service received elsewhere in europe the staff here excel
I took my mother for her 60th birthday celebration in Prague in last January and despite the record cold weather we had a fantastic time mainly due to the superb care of the staff at Four Seasons. From the first moment we arrived in Prague, we were pampered by a delightful staff of professionals who were genuinely interested in making our stay special. The service is definitely an area where the Four Seasons Prague staff shines through. The one area of the hotel that left the biggest impression on us was the Allegro restaurant. We enjoyed both lunch and dinner at Allegro every day and it was more of a culinary event extraordinaire every time than just a meal. We've traveled to many Four Seasons Resorts from Maui to Punta Mita where the weather and surroundings almost automatically make for a nice trip, but those VERY cold days in Prague are by far our favorite. Superb hotel, highly recommended.
This is certainly the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I can't imagine that even someone used to luxury all the time would be finding fault. The desk staff greeted us by name upon arrival. All of the staff, including waiters and even the chambermaids, spoke English. Our particular arrangement included continental breakfast every morning, but a full range of (pricey) cooked breakfast items are available, prepared in the excellent hotel's restaurant Allegro's kitchen.
Just spent a birthday weekend at the Four Seasons Prague and I can honestly say that we were overwhelmed by the excellent level of service, attention to detail and shear levels of luxury at this beautiful hotel. Everything that you could wish for from a leading hotel exceeded our expectations and the central location was perfect by the river with stunning views of the Castle and Charles Bridge. We stayed in a deluxe cat room which was huge with very high ceilings and an over generous marble bathroom. Enjoy!
Lovely and luxe Four Seasons
The Four Seasons in Prague lives up to its reputation of taste, service, restrained elegance and excellent food. The restaurant at the hotel is considered the finest in in the city. Because Prague is known for its glassware, the vases in the public areas were spare and original, made even more so by striking flower arrangements that captures the artistic sensibility of the city. What a lovely place.
Centrally located, a helpful, genuinely friendly staff and a lovely suite overlooking the St. Charles bridge made this a difficult place to leave. Its was heavenly.
